I am programming a game called Metallic Wing about the loneliness of being stranded in space. I started learning Famitracker/music composition specifically to try to make a gloomy/sci-fi soundtrack that fit the theme of the game. This track is my favorite attempt so far!

It's a hell of a lot better than my first bunch of compositions. You've really managed to convey that gloomy feel you were going for. Don't get too good, or I'll start to get worried.

thanks man, I'm really enjoying doing this so far. I've been listening to some of the other entries though and it's pretty humbling. I feel like I am starting to get the hang of the actual composition part, but still have a long way to go in technical proficiency. the intricacy of some of the sounds I've been hearing has been making me nauseous... can't imagine coming up with any of it myself lol

I'm sure! it'd almost be unfair to assume that people got to where they did solely through natural talent and not through dedication lol. I actually think I've improved quite a bit technically-speaking since I made this song (a few months ago) but since this is the first song I made from scratch that I was actually proud of I had to submit it first :)

You DEFINITELY have potential. Even already, this is a decent work of music you've produced. Keep working at that technical aspect, if this song is any indication you definitely have the basics down and the potential to become even better. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

wow, thanks a lot flaminglog! that is an awesome thing to say, I really appreciate it! I am really looking forward to getting some more work out there. I'm having so much fun working on the soundtrack for this game that it's becoming harder and harder to work on the actual game lol

homskillet, technical proficiency hint: source-ftm peaking is not an uncommon thing with the famitracker crowd at all ;) buncha hackist so-and-sos...

good advice. I have done that a few times, but I should probably make it more of a habit. are those available on botb in any way? still learning the site, but I haven't seen any way to up/download source files, so I'm guessing not. I know I've seen a few people link to their ftm repositories on their profile page though.
